Here at the SwimOutlet.com headquarters in San Jose, CA, we got a conference room makeover with an Olympic swimming themed mural painted by artist Morgan Bricca. She based the mural off a real image from the 2012 London Olympics to capture the essence of Olympic swimming. Watch the video to see the mural come to life.
More information about Murals by Morgan can be found at her website.
We made a list and checked it twice. With the end of the year upon us, we thought we’d look back on some of the best viral videos from 2012. Enjoy some laughs and Happy New Year from SwimOutlet.com
